told us consistently that they care the most about sdwrobs and the economy, that's likely to be the big issue on everybody's mind. the political danger for the president, though, about the libya issue is that the romney campaign is trying to attach it to a larger critique of this administration. that on issues from libya to the economy they are out of ideas. that they are not on the case that they've not been showing leadership. so in that way it's a way for romney to make a case about the administration as a whole even though it's on an issue that will not be front of mind for voters. >> jeff: let's talk about the electoral college math now if we could for a moment. what does the math look like right now for each candidate? >> the math favors president obama at the start. there are more states that he is likely to win in his column than for mitt romney. then when you look at the battleground states, the president has more pathways to get to that magical number of 270. so for example, he could lose florida, ohio, and virginia to mitt romney and still there are enough battle grouped stat
